What is the best link building strategy that is working in 2016?
100% Niche relevant backling is the best link building strategy in 2016.
That is a very hard question to answer, as it is all relative to the niche as well. There are some niches that are so dog eat dog, nobody really likes to one way link without something beneficial to them (MONEY). It just takes a lot of networking and trial & error. I go the slow and methodical way, I use MOZ and create a set of branded keywords and look for anybody using them. If I find a related site using the branded keywords I like. I simply send them a feeler email a few times. I'd say it works 20% of the time, but there is no real "do this and you get a backlink" strategy.
Yes, I think it's best way in 2016
PBN links + Social Signals (and as stated above, the more relevant the better when it comes to the PBN posts). That's the basics of it.
Of course you can combine with other sources for diversity but it's optional.
For me, I try to find forums and profile pages relevant to my niche. Then I boost the PA of these forum and profile pages using links that my competitors have (look at your competitor's links through Ahrefs or Majestic !).
PNB is the trend, although be careful what you use, I have a feeling they will get the next Google update strike. As always diversity is golden.
Although PBN really works, here's what I think is the best.
In terms of strategy, checking and scraping (then acquiring) your competitor backlinks is the best. Why? because if these links works for them, at your niche and at your target keyword, it will work for you too!
The combination of all link building strategies is the best option for efficient results.
If you'll use a single one then, it'll take a lot of time and you'll not get reliable results.
Is it a bad idea to methodically begin to create one's own PBN? WHat are the cons and risks of this route and what is particularly challenging about it? The challenge I see is gaining traffic to the websites, but I'm not sure if they need that or not. -More of a question than an answer, any help would be appreciated!
